Expert Review

The Lumiquest Promax Softbox III is an excellent choice when you need to spread your flashs output to evenly cover larger groups, achieve maximum softness in cast shadows, or in situations where bounce light is simply not available. Spreading light does have a cost though; with the Softbox III, there is a 1.25 stop light loss. Its slightly over seven ounce weight introduces similar considerations for on-camera or run and gun usage as do other diffusers primarily designed for off-camera use. In addition, on some cameras, the Softbox IIIs profile extends down in front of the cameras auto exposure sensor and autofocus assist, which can interfere with these functions.

Out of the box, the Softbox III attaches by adhering Velcro strips to your flash unit. This can be easily avoided by obtaining a separate HONL Velcro strap. The Softbox III folds flat to 8-by-9 inches for easy storage.Rating: 4.75/5
